IT’S NOT ROCK WITHOUT DRUMS!

What to Expect
Every class is a show and everyone is in the band.
Our research based curriculum, activities and song selection vary weekly.
Each week we use a variety of materials: shakers, dancing ribbons, drums, puppets, and a selection of mystery discovery instruments which we explore during our instrument show-n-tell.
Our imaginations and creativity are stimulated every class with various songs that target dramatic play and dance. Each week we embark on a different adventure during our Adventure Song – a true highlight for the children.
Beat and rhythm are the essential building blocks of musical performance and an integral part of the Rockness Music experience. Each child is given individual drums and sticks and instructed to follow along as they sing songs, count and drum.
Instrument Show & Tell
Every week the children discover a new, intriguing instrument – part of our mystery discovery instrument series. Everyone has an opportunity to play the instrument and share it during our show-n-tell circle time. We add a touch of preschool science (STEM) as we learn about the shapes and color of the instruments.
